I’ve never been nominated for anything before! This is just like the Oscars! I’d like to thank the Academy… :-p Ok I’d actually like to thank the excellent Good Niamhning for nominating me. Her blog is awesome, go check it out!

1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you and display the award.
2. Answer eleven questions the blogger gives you.
3. Give eleven random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate eleven blogs you think are worthy of the award (but they must have less than 200 followers).
5. Let the bloggers know you nominated them.
6. Give them eleven questions to answer


Here are my answers to her (surprisingly difficult) questions:

1. What is your dream job?

My dream as a kid was always to be a super-famous pop star but the ability to carry a tune, alas, also remained within my dreams. Realistically, I’d love to be a writer, or a stylist, or some combination of the above. And a super-famous Hollywood actress by night! And a detective! And a professional pizza taster! And also the Queen!

2. What is your most embarrassing story?

Story? Singular? You must be joking. Hmm, if I had to choose, it would probably be the time I tried to wave at a boy I was desperately into and crashed my bike into a statue because I wasn’t looking where I was going. Or the time I tripped and fell into a guy’s arms in a club which almost felt like it might be a meet-cute until I reared up and head butted his nose then ran out while he lurched around clutching his face. Or maybe the time…..(seriously, I could do this all night)

3. Where is your favourite city in the world?

There are so many cities I still haven’t visited that may turn out to be my favourite but so far, I’ve had really good experiences in Los Angeles, Dublin, New York, Stockholm and Athens. And I’ve lived in London my whole life because it’s amazing. And I think Paris is overrated. Sorry.

4. What is your favourite book?

Wah? Are you trying to kill me? That’s an impossible question! But books that I have loved include Matilda – Roald Dahl, The Faraway Tree series – Enid Blyton, Summer Sisters – Judy Blume (what? I was a teenage girl once and Judy Blume is awesome!), The Madness of a  Seduced Woman – Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, How to be a Woman – Caitlin Moran and The Beauty Myth – Naomi Wolf. I’m also super-excited for the release of The Vagenda book next month!

5. If you were only allowed to use one beauty product forever more, what would it be?

Lip balm, probably Blistex or Vaseline. I can’t bear having dry lips.

6. Do you have any hidden/not so hidden talents?

No. I’m frequently described as a good listener so…no.


7. What is the thing you like best about yourself?

I’m a good listener?

I think I’m quite nice, I hate seeing people upset.

8. What was your outfit today?

Fairly dull actually. I’m at work so I’m wearing black treggings, my black ballerina “Cecilia” flats from Office (the best flats ever, and they usually do a sale around Easter…) and a white boho-y top from Next that I bought last summer but am wearing for the first time today because I worry that it looks a bit maternity-y. Silver and blue vintage earrings, a silver bangle, and a touristy evil eye bracelet from Athens make up my jewellery. And I’m wearing my new-ish Primark spring trench with faux-leather sleeves.


9. Do you have a hero?

Can I plagiarise Matthew McConaughey here? No? Ok, Cher Horowitz, Blair Waldorf and Summer Roberts combined, with a dash of Rory Gilmore.

10. Dogs or cats?


11. If you were on death row, what would be your final meal: starter, main and dessert?

Starter: Pizza, souvlakia imported from Greece, McDonald’s, Chinese and ice cream (what? it’s not like I’ll be watching my weight…)
Main: My sister’s roast beef, with Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, carrots, sweetcorn and gravy. Omg, I’m hungry now…
Dessert: Hmm, what takes a really really long time to eat?

11 Random Facts about Meeeeeee

– I looked up why it’s called the Liebster Award. (Apparently “liebster” means “dearest”, “beloved” or “sweetheart” in German).
– My main life goal is to eat McDonald’s on every continent.
– My nicknames are Dim and Rooney.
-My spirit animal is Amy March from “Little Women”.
– I never cry in real life but put me in front of a moderately, slightly, not-quite-super-happy movie and I will flood the cinema.
– I want to look like Salma Hayek when I grow up. (I’m 27 and starting to lose hope…)
– I am rubbish at all sports. I actually picked my secondary school on the basis that they didn’t have a sports day. (And then they introduced one. Naturally.)
– I am the youngest of 4 siblings (and not at all spoilt ;-p)
– I think Eminem is the greatest poet of my generation.
– My favourite movie is “Grease” and I know every line.
– I have a massive crush on Beast in “Beauty and the Beast”. (The castle, complete with library, ballroom and a million adorable members of staff, has nothing to do with it.)

ImageCall me…

Totally randomly, while I was looking for pictures of the Beast, I came across this, which may just be the coolest thing ever!:
